Thank you for stopping by my page and reading my work!
Hmm... A little about me - I prefer to write about characters, but here goes...
Born in Philadelphia, USA, I was raised in Melbourne, Australia, from the age of 4. I currently live in an old gold-rush village an hour outside of Melbourne in the central highlands of Victoria. I live with my husband, who I was lucky enough to meet at university in 1991, and our cat Oggie (after Oghma, Celtic god of writing), who we adopted when we made our tree-change at the end of 2016. My husband and I met because of our mutual love of Tolkein, Terry Pratchett and philosophical debate (i.e., being utter nerds) and it's what keeps us together!
After uni, I somehow managed to turn my backstage audio-tech experience from school into a career turning some of Australia's best loved books (and some not-so-loved!) into audio books. I did that for about seven years and then took about the same time off, as my husband's career took us on an adventure living in Japan and Thailand - all the while practicing writing my own stories.
At the end of my last year in Thailand, 2013, I decided to join Wattpad and let my stories peek into the world and see if anyone peeked back. That so many have is a daily delight and I appreciate every single read, vote and comment so much!
If you enjoyed reading As Long As She Lives - or any of my work - here, I hope you'll consider supporting me by buying a copy of the edited, published version. It's available online in paperback and eBook worldwide at all the usual places and signed paperbacks can be ordered via my website where you will also find links to the most popular online stores! https://www.darcyconroy.com/as-long-as-she-lives/
Wishing you all love, creativity and courage,
